Lazy Gardener and a Giveaway!

I suggest we celebrate Labor Day with a giveaway and product review! 🙂 
Come back tomorrow for the Features from Fancy This Fridays!
Happy Labor Day!!! 

In my family being able to grow things is just kind of an inherited trait.
Can you pass a ‘green thumb’ down through generations?? I tend to think so… Or perhaps it’s more of a learned trait in that I grew up with both grandmothers growing gardens and flowers. My parents’ had one of the nicest yards and outside areas in our small town (maybe I’m biased, but really!).
Regardless of how I became this way I am a lover of growing things. Plants, trees, anything lush and green warms my heart!
*Cue screeching tire noise here* And then we moved to the desert of Arizona…

Don’t get me wrong, you can still grow things… It just takes alot more patience and a WHOLE lot more water!!!
Enter My Lazy Gardener!

gardening review

 I was able to review one of their container  automatic watering devices. It’s a simple set up…
A little bit of potting soil in the bottom of your planter or other container.

The black heating element goes in next.
This is a great spot to mention that it’s a 3-in-1 device! It waters, heats your roots and aerates the soil!
You’ll want to make sure you leave out the water um… they call it a ‘moisture delivery wick’, i.e. the white tube. 😉
And of course the electrical cord!

Then you can finish potting your plant of choice!

automatic waterer review

The last steps are to use some sort of watering container to hold your water, stick the moisture wick down into and plug it into a wall outlet. I just used an old water bottle for my water reservoir.

It’s been about a week and a half since I started using My Lazy Gardener with my newest house plant.
So far I’m quite impressed! A plant that otherwise would need to be babysat to ensure enough water and what not, has been all but forgotten! I’ve only had to refill my water reservoir (the water bottle) once so far.
The plant seems to be thriving and with that I couldn’t be happier!

They also have a  raised bed model that I would love to try in my flower beds outside next spring!

  4. Les Johnson says:

    I would like to grow some basil.

  5. I would love to try to grow an indoor strawberry plant!!

  6. So I started my first garden this year. Lucky for me I’ve managed to water it nightly, with the help of my 18 month old daughter who absolutely loves it. You wouldn’t believe the things we’ve grown. Cucumbers, pumpkins, green beans, garlic. It’s been so rewarding! We now have bigger plans in the works for next year and this would help so much with a little flower bed I’m planning on chocking full of herbs. Fingers crossed!
